• The number of COVID-19 test results submitted by private labs has grown in the past 24-hours. Earlier this month, the Commissioner designated COVID-19 as a disease that is immediately reportable to OSDH upon suspicion, diagnosis, or test. Any laboratories that fail or refuse to report findings to OSDH may subject to civil and criminal penalties.
• Over the past week, the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) has worked to move as much of its workforce as possible to teleworking. As of Friday, 51 percent were teleworking, and by the end of today, 75 percent of the agency's central office workforce will be teleworking. A large number of the OSDH workforce, including those at county health departments, are at the epicenter of responding to COVID-19. The Commissioner of Health is committed to a structure that is safe for employees while also delivering robust, coordinated services to address the pandemic in Oklahoma.
• The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) continues to support guidelines from the CDC related to social distancing and personal hygiene. OSDH encourages Oklahomans to stay home, reduce person-to-person contact, wash hands frequently, and avoid touching your face.
